The Buffalo Bills' regular season is done and with an 11 - 6 record, they have completed their fourth straight AFC East championship. After dispatching the Miami Dolphins and securing the division title, they now have the number two seed in the AFC playoffs and are set to host the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend.

How did the Bills get here though? They battled through a multitude of injuries, including losing Tre'Davious White and Matt Milano to season-ending injuries early in the season. They also lost DaQuan Jones about the same time for the majority of the regular season. The Bills showed resiliency and excellent roster depth with guys like Poona Ford, Jordan Phillips, and Tim Settle helping to fill the void left by DaQuan Jones. They also had Dane Jackson help when White went down until the team brought in Rasul Douglas via a mid-season trade.

What about the linebackers, rookie Dorian Williams did his part, as did Baylon Spector more recently. Tyrel Dodson stepped in and has played well too. Cam Lewis, Siran Neal, and Damar Hamlin all played roles at some point too. But who on this roster surprised the most of Bills Mafia? For the team to be where they are right now, a few guys needed to step up and they did just that. Let's take a look at my five guys that surprised us all.
